latino voters up compared to just two months ago. they find 45% of latino voters say they're more likely to vote, up 8% from just ten weeks ago. the poll also found support for the president matching an all-time high this year with 73% choosing president obama. let me bring in msnbc and nbc latino contributor victoria defrancesco soto, a senior fellow at the university of texas. >> greetings from austin, chris. >> an article in "the washington post" talked about president obama's election strategist david plouffe being so crucial. it depends on plouffe's ability to activate the latino, african-american and young voters who have a more erratic track record shows up at the polls and thus often not up counted as likely voters. the article says plouffe took that voter base for granted. do you agree with the poll. are you sengsing growing enthusiasm among latino voters? >> we're seeing growing enthusiasm, and in particular we see that enthusiasm grow over the past ten weeks. latino decisions has been tracking latino enthusiasm for the past ten weeks. it started out at lower level and increase

, to the latino community. notable he will be there as well. >> very interesting. thanks very, very much, jim acosta in littleton, colorado. >>> all right. this just coming in to cnn. the results of our brand new poll among latinos all over the united states. certainly one of the country's fastest growing and increasingly important groups of voters. look at this. it shows overwhelming support for president obama. he leads mitt romney 70% to 26% among likely latino voters. let's bring in our chief national correspondent john king joining us from denver, the site of the debate tomorrow night. john, you've taken a close look at these numbers. are there any nuggets in there that may be good for the romney campaign? because 70% of latinos saying they're likely to vote for the president of the united states, that's pretty bad for romney. >> reporter: wolf, i've scrubbed the numbers, looked at the cross tops and in a word, no, there is nothing encouraging for the romney campaign in the poll of likely latino voters. one way you judge an incumbent president, president obama, you ask people what do you
turnout. we have a new poll that shows 8% of latinos have already voted. furthermore, the poll finds that 87% of latinos say they're certain to vote by november the 6th. could that level of turnout do you think, lily, give the president a significant margin of victory in places like florida and nevada? >> absolutely. and we've already talked about electoral maps here, and what happens with latinos is because the market is so concentrated in three key states, in this case colorado, nevada, and florida, which are critical for deciding who makes it to the white house, those are exactly the states where we are starting to see some early numbers. some of the, you know, obama campaign officials have said there's been up to, you know, 15% more early turnout by latinos since they opened in florida. so it's definitely a big, big number, and it's going to continue to rise. you know, colorado voters, you know registered voters that are latino are up by 15% which is a big number. it will make a big difference and we are more enthusiastic, the latest numbers are 45% of all hispanics that are regi
. intimidating billboards going up in african-american and latino communities in cleveland ohio saying if you go to vote, you might get arrested for x., y. and z. reasons. then you've got misleading ads like the one we showed you. this is actually run by a lot of the governments in pennsylvania, they're running radio ads and t.v. ads saying hey, you know what, you might need photo i.d. that's not true. finally, we had one last one employer pressure. that's from the actual c.e.o.'s. remember mitt romney speaking to them saying if there's one thing you can do to help you can tell their employees if they know what's good for them, they better vote on our side. the c.e.o.'s have complied and sent these threatening emails saying you're going to be fired unless you vote for our guy. that's not all. wait until you get ahold of mar copiopia county, where sheriff joe is. they've been accused of doing an enormous amount of antti latino actions. watch this. >> last week, we heard from a concerned voter in democracy 2012 complaining the wrong election date was written in spanish on her voter i.d. cards. the
is not going to win the latino vote but the question now is how much is he going to lose it by. the president is now up 52 points amongst latino voters compared to six weeks ago, the support has dropped from 26 to 21%. back in august, romney said he was aiming for 38% of the hispanic vote. that was seven points more than what john mccain had in 2008. latinos are the largest minority group in the united states. 23.7 million are eligible to vote in this election. that is a record but turnout is traditionally lower for this minority than white or black voters overall. some churches are working to turn out the latino and african american vote bypassing out voter registration cards in battle ground states and asking people to promise to participate in caravans to get souls to the polls on election day. and since latinos are not likely to vote for mitt romney it is not stopping him from trying to win them over. he is going to honor the temporary work permits that allow young people to stay in the country. we're back in just a minute. what not to wear. >>and now to my point. tha
out is latinos are underpolled nationwide partly because of a language barrier. you don't get an accurate reading and we talked about before in 2010 colorado, harry reid, a lot of latinos there. they trailed sharon engel by three points at the end and he wins. they're not correctly polling latinos and hispanics. virginia is a huge thing. 80% of the state, and a 92% increase since 2000. if you see an irregularity or differentiation from the polling in colorado, virginia, florida and perhaps florida on election night because they didn't correctly poll lati teenotices. >> virginia will come down to the d, democrats. 200,000 defense jobs are on the line with that sequestration looming on the horizon. the president knows that. i think george allen and tim kainen that. george allen has a new ad talking about it. >> the defense cuts tim kaine are threatening over 200,000 virginia jobs. the solution is to raise taxes. that will cost even more jobs. >> i think there's making a big deal about this because then it's crucial in the state economy. it will trickle up to the presidential ele
in to this column today on the strength of three different factors. two of them having to do with the latino vote. the demographics have shifted in favor of democrats even since 2008. our friend nate cohn pointed out 69% to 65.5% over 4 years, 150,000 more african-americans registered and 300,000 more registered hispanics. plurality of which are registered as democrats and demographics moved and also latinos are energized about the election. 87% nationwide of registered latinos say they'll cast a ballot. 45% said they're more excited than they were in 2008. the numbers up and increasing week by week and very encouraging for the president in florida but, you know, the last factor that actually caused me to move the state in to the blue column is sandy and that's why i moved it just today because i think florida's a state where people really understand the importance of fema, the importance of an effective and strong national response to disasters and i think the president's leadership here as close as the race is in florida could be enough to move it in his favor. >> well, not surprisingly, my rac
are saying that romney must win florida to win the race. the southern state has a high percentage of latino voters as well as senior citizens, many of home are worried about their benefits. >> polls show the candidates are neck-and-neck. >> hold on tight. irene takes me on a fast pace tour of the retirement community in her golf cart. florida is home to many retirees, and a high proportion of them vote. i asked her if they are aware of their influence. >> well, you know, we have people in here 94, 93, 99. some of them are still pretty sharp, and then you have others who are not near that age that do not know what day of the week it is. >> most residents in the community have healthy finances and can afford to pay their rent and purchase a home here. that makes them more likely to lean republican. that is the case with irene, who has supported the republicans for over 60 years. but now, she fears that mitt romney may cut her social security and medicare benefits or privatize them. >> i have never been torn like this in any election, and that's the god's truth. i could have lied to you and sa
. particularly, i went door-to-door with latino canvas workers. they were just getting it out and working like crazy. i think the obama campaign has got their stuff together there. >> jennifer: so many people have made up their mind and acted upon that early. >> in nevada, another state where the latino vote is really changing the picture. >> jennifer: you were there. you saw some of that, too. >> just last week. crowds of californians are going there. have gone there for the last three weekends, particularly to with a shaw county which is a swing county near reno and down by vegas. those two areas are just a hotbed of activity right now. >> jennifer: all of the swing states, all of the stuff is going on even while everybody's attention is focused on the east. >> completely. >> jennifer: and do you think -- i mean we've seen obviously the president -- being presidential. we've seen mitt romney as well. are there missteps here? >> on the president's side, he looked picture perfect today. a picture of leadership. a pictur
. with all that information, campaign is able to build teams of like-mindalled volunteers, latinos for obama, pacific islanders for obama. sportsmen for obama. all being recruited as part of the obama ground game. they meet online and then gather in the real world. >> i think we're expecting a few more people who are going to get started so we can keep on with our agenda. >> sreenivasan: this group of volunteers who cared about lesbian, gay, by sexual and transgender issues was preparing to go out and canvass local voters in support of the president. it seems whether it's dashboard or the mobile apps, they serve two purposes: one, to make sure your teams are in communication with one another and another to learn about the voters you're going out and reaching. >> absolutely. we're always going to be collecting information. because that's how, you know, we extend our reach. that's how we can continue to communicate with that person. just one phone call or one email is not going to get that person to be... to the polls on election day. >> sreenivasan: for years campaigns have dreamed of being a
is robyn wright, former labor secretary and economic's professor and teresa, president and ceo of latino and an msnbc contributor. thank you both for being here tonight. >> thank you, reverend. >> senator reich, let me start with you. you've been writing an article about how skewed is. is the word getting out to voters? >> undoubtedly, the voters are getting a sense that romney is not on their side. it's not just the policies and tax plan that gives the rich a huge benefit, at the same time cutting most of the programs that are for the poor and middle class and medicare, medicaid, and so forth. but it's also side remarks. for example, the videotape of romney saying he doesn't care about or he's not worried about 47% of americans who are pampered and who are not taking responsibility for themselves. it's romney himself. i think in the debates romney has two big problems that he's got to try to overcome. one is mathematics. he's got to show what loophole he's going to close. the second is authenticity. he's got to show that authentically he's someone that cares about average working people
latino and an msnbc contributor. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you, reverend. >> david, what do these latest tapes tell you about governor romney? >> i'm glad you played that second tape. if you listen to it carefully and think about it for a moment, it says that mitt romney wants america to compete with china for having an environment more hospitable for business, but why do businesses go to china? they go because there are low wages and weak labor protections and nonexistent environmental standards. so, is he suggesting that's what he wants for american workers and american consumers? i mean, it's not a well thought out idea. certainly nothing he will talk about in the campaign. and since we're in the closing days, probably nothing he'll be pressed on. but he's saying, hey, guys, we have to be as bad as china in order to get businesses to come here rather than go there. >> and it's also a mischaracterization of his position and the president's. another thing that struck me is when i heard mrs. romney at the fund-raiser say the president isn't adult enough to lead the country.
latinos in particular, those two parts of his base. african-american enthusiasm subpoeis up and fine and there. latinos and young voters, this is sort of the president's challenge. it's not about swing voters for him i would argue. at this point it's about trying to fire up two voting groups more than anything else, because they doubled it. he's winning latinos by a bigger margin, but because they're not as enthusiastic if they don't look like likely voters, he might not net any new votes in some places. if seniors are ticking up in enthusiasm, which is what we show, that's the difference in nevada, right? that's how a nevada goes 51-49 obama to 51-49 romney. >> mika. >> we saw also in the polls the enthusiasm gap, which i think is really troubling for the president but also tightening with women. what do you think is going on there? >> what i find very interesting is how one of the problems obama now has is his own side is so hysterical. it's like the republicans are very good at staying on message when they have a bad hole to get into it. if something goes wrong for them, the whole

. >> to hear people saying that some of us latinos got in here easily and the only reason we got in here is because of our race, that's really disappointing. we work just as hard as anyone else did to get here to ut. >> reporter: conservative groups say it's not just about getting in. the u.s. civil rights commission says studies show that using racial preferences can hurt minorities by starting them out near the bottom of their classes. >> if they're towards the bottom of whatever class they go to, they are much more likely to give up on an ambitiono major in science and engineering. >> almost a decade ago, then justice sandra day o'connor wrote a majority opinion that said that the university of michigan law school had a compelling interest in promoting class diversity and suggested affirmative action might still be needed for another 25 years. o'connor has since left the court, leading to speculation that the court's conservatives could now strike a blow to preferences. joe johns, cnn, washington. >> thank you, joe johns. so jeff toobin, this is the question. does this texas case rais
registrants, young people, latinos, african-americans, are really getting out there and taking advantage of this. >> iwant to open this up to our little panel here. richard, we were talking before the break about how much the president in stepping into the role of commander in chief would inform and enthuse swing voters and you seem to think this is something people vote on, this does change minds. >> yeah. look, we're not talking here about driving the base, right. completely different discussion about sporadic and determined voters. but in that sliver of undecideds, this whole set of events, the kind of presidential acts and executive decisions that he has to move forward with over the next couple days, make him look bigger, make him look like a national figure in a way that the debates made him look smaller. and that's what mitt romney has a very hard thing to come out against as in any equivalent manner. debates have that equalizing effect. there's no way mitt romney can stage anything that will look as presidential as what the president can do. in that sense you have the advantages
the latino community but people across the state. >> finally pennsylvania, there's a lot of talk out of pennsylvania that senator bob casey is in some difficulty, that pennsylvania is closer than it should be from a democratic perspective. >> for any of these states mitt romney has been trying to compete in ohio, trying to -- it's been hard nut for that campaign to crack. they haven't been able to. now they're playing this bluffing game of trying to expand the math. our belief is the math is set. same states we've been talking about. no way i will dye my hair black and wear a fake mustache if they win pennsylvania, michigan or new mexico. these are not states we're concerned about. of course we're on the ground, competing for every vote but this is a bluff by the romney team. >> we've got a jen psaki and david axelrod bet. this will be interesting. >> it will be. >> you're watching live pictures of staten island as you can see quite a change there as well from this storm. and we'll be right back. loating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day >> question t these dig
the senate bennett model of 2010 where women, the youth vote and latinos came out in great numbers for senator bennett and they'll come out for president obama because he understands their hopes and dreams. >> 1 million folks in your state voted so far republicans have had about 3% lead over democrats in terms of overall ballots cast, that's according to a recent report of kwgn. >> that's right. we shouldn't be worried. in 2010 against senator bennett in the same position and slightly behind early on and we gained momentum. our people were at the doors and tracking and tracing the ballots and the formula that we put in place in 2010 will be the same formula that leads to president obama's win here next tuesday. >> senator udall, thank you very much. greatly appreciate your time. thank you, sir. >> thank you. >>> everyone is wondering the impact of sandy on the election. well, history shows it largely depends, of course, on response. salon.com has research that shows voters punish leaders for failing to act and reward those who respond effectively. we are joined by presidential hist
they have the policy debate, absolutely. he knows latino vote, younger votes could be the difference for president obama. he's trying to chip into that advantage. but the part that makes you scratch your head is why didn't you say that in the first place. >> the timing, the timing. john king, let's talk money. big, big money, karl rove's american crossroads conservative super pac buying $11 million worth of tv ads across eight different swing states. straightforward, you know, the ad talks about unemployment, a lot of numbers here, rising government spending, what is the strategy? why the huge buy-in and why now? >> reporter: why now, because we're into crunch time. there are five weeks left, brooke, and the romney campaign is behind a few points in some of the battleground states, behind a handful in ohio, florida, maybe more in virginia, six or eight in wisconsin. republicans dispute some numbers but no question a dead heat in colorado. a number of super pacs are going in with heavier spending, trying to influence voters and do that after the debate. if romney turns in a strong deb
's really the case of what we may see. the country is more latino than it used to be. a lot of these states that are on the border like north carolina have more african-americans than it did four years ago, so all -- we don't want to get too much into the methodology of polls, but the number of total voters exist may be bigger than what the media is including in their numbers. >> bill: maine, michigan minnesota, new mexico nevada pennsylvania, that those are basically -- these are toss-up states but say look like they are going to go for obama. >> i think the president is up something like six points in nevada which is a huge deal for him. >> bill: yeah, that's six leaning republican, they only have two. arizona and north carolina. and north carolina could still go the other way. >> yeah. >> bill: in the middle toss up and this is what it really comes down to, seven colorado, florida, iowa -- where i think the president is still up -- new hampshire -- which last i saw the president is still up -- ohio which is the president is up by five at least in o
talked about if i was perhaps latino, it would be easier for me, i would be winning this thing already. he said a bunch of other things in that video that this is going to undermine his ability to really attack the president on domestic policies and seen as believable. because we saw mitt romney talking in private about how he really feels. so what he says on stage is going to sound hollow because we saw him behind the scenes. and that's his greatest obstacle about the whole video. it's not about the numbers and trying to break it down, it's the sentiment behind the entire video which was condescending, which came from a place of elitism. >> okay. he just misspoke. >> no, i think, carol, he makes a good point. that's going to be very difficult for romney to readdress that 47%. on the flip side, this will be the first time someone can really go after president obama over the administration's handling of what went down in libya and their explanation it was a spontaneous attack. this is the first time that somebody can really push directly on president obama about that. >> okay. we'll see
is that good for president obama? given the president's support among african-americans, latinos and other voters, governor romney needs to keep the president to 37%, no more than 38% of the white vote. if the president's cracking 47% of the white vote, that's a formula for an obama victory. and where are the key big battleground states? there are several in the midwest. ohio, iowa, wisconsin. look at the race in the midwest. obama, 52%, romney, 43%. the president is winning that part of the country. out west in denver, colorado, nevada, among the battlegrounds out here in the west. ten-point lead in the west for the president. 54% to 44%. the white vote and if you look regionally, there are things that give the president's team some optimism. >> if you're the romney campaign looking at these new poll numbers, what should give the romney folks some optimism? >> reporter: one of the reasons we are back in a closer race, a statistical dead heat nationally f you go state by state, it's a little different, this number, governor romney has improved his standing among independents. he leads by e
this with latinos because he doesn't actually want to change it. it's all verbal. that's the problem with their campaign right now is that they think that zingers and catchphrases can turn around what everybody knows are the actual policy of the romney campaign. >> stephanie: that's it, isn't it kerry? what hal said. the 47% wasn't a gaffe. it is their -- that's their policies really. >> yeah. i mean i think you know, this may seem like an awkward place to quote oprah but oprah -- when they tell you who they are listen. i think that is super important. >> stephanie: yeah. that's exactly right. and really in some ways, believe me a lot of conservatives are cheering those remarks and saying double down on them. yes. time to have this conversation. >> yeah. it is a little bit scary. i think it is part of what's so interesting about our show. i feel like at this point where we're so oversaturated with these political and diddals -- scandals film because there is no privacy anymore. the fact that you can't say anythi
in battleground states. in colorado tonight, that state will be decided if most latinos turn out and most evangelicals turn out. that will be decided by suburban women. more moderate than mitt romney. virginia now with the demographic changes not much better. what do people want? their legs are tired. four, five, six, tough years economically and they want somebody to tell them, the next four years will be better. if he can beat the president on that question, he can change the race tonight. >> we'll hear about the middle class. if there is a drinking game, that is the phrase to look for to drink the most. gloria was saying that joe biden's phrase will be used perhaps by governor romney. will that be effective? >> i would say this is about vice president biden. when he is himself he's more relatable, and more empathetiem. than romney is on purpose. the reason why he can make mistakes and still beloved, he's authentic. the most authentic person on the state has a big advantage. >> i think john's argument is exactly right. romney has to shake up this race, but the first few minutes, i will
relations, i think you will see democrats across the board will be disappointed. a lot of black and latino folk happen to vote democratic if their candidate happens to lose, which i don't think will happen. if if president obama does lose, they will be disappointed. and disappointment based on the political party piece and the loss of a presidential election. >> okay. senator lincoln, admiral sestak, i want to ask both of you. in terms of what you saw in the halls of congress, what can be done by those in power to keep things moving forward? to help get past this spirit of partisanship that has stalled everything so dramatically? senator lincoln, to you first. >> first of all, i think they have to certainly reassure one another, it's not the individual battles they are fighting, but the war we have to win, and the war is fought by us all as americans, whether it's the economy, education, health care, or anything else. they also need to spend more time together, and that doesn't mean being in session longer, they are already in session way too much, but it's spending time together, so that
